Description

It's ok, you can admit it. Sometimes motherhood seems less like the sweetness of a Pamper's commercial and more like a scene out of Jaws. Here at the Mother Like a Boss Podcast, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and modern homemaking, with honest conversations, tips, strategies and tools.

Episode Date
Confessions of a "submarine parent"
35:19

I'll admit, I'm not a hoverer. I've always been independent and want to raise my children to be the same. Because of this, I consider myself a submarine parent: you know, the kind that sits below the surface, comes up to check on things every now and then, and goes back below the surface if all is good.

This isn't a judgement of anyone else's parenting style. Quite the opposite. This is the confession of a parent that tries to ride the line between overbearing and totally passive. We're all in this together, mamas. (and no matter how you're parenting your children, we'll all eventually just find ourselves fishing a Cheerio out of someone's nose in the middle of the night.)

Why you need to start asking for help at home
11:09

Running your home is a team sport, so why is so much of your team benched while you play all the positions?

You deserve to communicate your needs and your family deserves to have your needs communicated.

What is your favorite way to work together as a team at home?

How to stop trying to keep up with the (mom) Joneses
28:10

Motherhood is a journey and we're all on our own path, so why are we so focused on what everyone else is doing? We've become obsessed with keeping up with other moms who are trying to keep up with other moms who are trying to keep up with other moms. It's a cycle of comparison that is disempowering and fruitless.

Let's instead compare ourselves to others only when it empowers us to do better and encourages us that if she can do it, so can I. It's time for us to run (or walk, or crawl, or waddle) our own races, mamas.

Keeping our word to ourselves
18:46

"I say what I mean and I mean what I say." I've been known to utter this phrase once or twice (or a hundred) times as a mom, but do I really mean it when it comes to myself? We're so busy trying to keep our promises and our word to our children, our spouses and our friends that we let self-integrity fall by the wayside.

If you want to see progress, it's time to hold ourselves to the integrity we expect of others. Say what you mean and mean what you say, mama.

The 5 guilty feelings we need to give up right now
17:06

There is no amount of guilt about the past that will change the future.

Checking in with your goals
15:20

We're almost at the end of the first quarter of the year and I'm thinking, "How is that even possible?" Time strikes again! While we ponder how it's possible that it's already the end of the first quarter, it's also the best time to check in with your goals.

Today's episode is a tribute to shifting your mindset away from failure and lack, and creating the space to check in with the goals you have set for yourself.

Un-martyring motherhood
11:01

We have a culture of motherhood suffering, struggle and sacrifice. What if it didn't HAVE to be this difficult? What if we started asking for and expecting help and stopped complaining about the help that we do get? You don't have to be a martyr to be a wonderful (and productive) mom!

How to clean like a professional house cleaner
29:48

After 11 years in the professional house cleaning biz, I learned a thing or two about how to clean more effectively in less time. It isn't about being the best. I started out knowing absolutely nothing, but over time I learned and it helped me not only build a thriving business, but also keep my own house clean in less time. I'm passing on this knowledge to my own kids now, and onto you.

You don't have to like cleaning to clean like a pro. It's all about making small shifts that have lasting results. Cleaning shouldn't be taking up all your time, friend.

Showing gratitude to our messes
14:38

Kids are messy. Motherhood is messy. Life is messy. Maybe it's time for us to be grateful for the beautiful things in life that create messes instead of waiting around for the messes to go away? Cleaning doesn't have to be a burden, it can be a means to an end: the end being joy.

Ep 114 An honest conversation about mommy judgement
37:43

"We are very good judges for the mistakes of others and very good defense lawyers for our own mistakes." -Nicky Gumble

We live in a very judgmental mom culture, where there is always someone to let you know you're making a mistake or the wrong choice. Mommy judgement is alive and well, but what about also discussing our own judgements of others and ourselves?

Today, I want to have an honest and open discussion about judgement. What it really means, where it really comes from and how we can start to pull away from people in our lives that have nothing but judgmental things to say to us on the regular.

Ep 112 Lessons from a life-long worrier
26:48

Would you consider yourself a worrier? I used to be and call myself a recovering worrier now. After years of deep work, I know now that my worry was caused not by anxiety, but rather the opposite was occurring: my need to control situations was the cause of the anxiety I felt.

Motherhood is a never-ending story of possible worry and overthinking about what could go wrong, but I've found that no amount of that overthinking makes it any easier and rarely do our worst thoughts even come true.

Today's episode is my story and a vulnerable look into how it feels to live inside your own head even when you know logically how ridiculous it is.

In a world that wants it fast and wants it now, how can we rise above the magic pill culture we're all caught up in? I've seen the effect of what happens when we avoid the journey of life impatiently waiting for the quick fix. Doing the work IS the journey.

In this tough love inspired episode, I'm encouraging you to end your search for the magic pill or guarantee outside of yourself and begin to recognize that the only person in complete control of your success as a mom and woman, is you.

Ep 110 Yes, I practice self-care daily (and you can, too!)
29:34

Self-care is a hot issue right now in the motherhood community and rightfully so. Moms, more than any other, are often left feeling depleted as we care for those around us and make excuses for why we can't care for ourselves. No more.

Today, I want to give you an honest and raw look at what I do everyday to care for myself above anyone else. When I'm at my best, I'm able to give my best. Although my family is my world, I will be with myself until the end and it's important that I care for my needs first so I can truly and without resentment care for others.

We're nurturers to so many. It's time for us to nurture the moms we are and honor the moms we aspire to be.

Ep 107 Stop making decisions out of fear
13:20

Around every corner in motherhood, there seems to be another thing to be afraid of. But what would our lives look like if we stopped making our everyday decisions out of fear? Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of being judged? We don't have to throw caution to the wind and live recklessly in order to enjoy a life where our decisions are based more on love than on fear.

Ep 106 Organization 101
30:57

Getting and staying organized isn't about how many storage containers or bins you have in your home. The last thing we need is more stuff to hold our stuff. Instead, I want to help you think of organization as nothing more than a system, something that can be replicated over and over again to give you ease in your life.

So, how do YOU feel about getting organized?

Ep 104 How we handle screen time in our home
28:49

In a world full of devices, screens, social media and all things internet based, screen time is a hot topic. It's a common question I get, "How should I handle screen time in my home?"

The truth is, I don't have all the answers. All I know is what works for us, and what works for us is setting clear boundaries and making our values clear. This episode is all about how my husband and I handle screen time in our home and what has worked for us.

Ep 103 Letting go of the need to control
19:22

I can't even describe the ways my life positively changed when I started letting go of the need to control everything in my life and started practicing the fine art of surrender. Surrendering isn't about giving up, it's about accepting what is so you can take more inspired action.

I know how easy it is to want to white-knuckle our way through motherhood, trying to control every aspect of our children and home, but if we can let go just for a moment, we will see the beauty in surrender and ease of true beingness.

Ep 102 Minimizing what isn't needed & embracing motherhood with a purpose w/ Allie Casazza
38:30

Let's all just face it: we are living with far too much stuff. Too many things, too many options, too many obligations. My guest today is on a mission to provide more for moms by showing them how to live with less.

Allie Casazza, host of The Purpose Show podcast, founder of the globally-praised course Your Uncluttered home, and one of my best friends in the whole word is bringing a lot of truth and wisdom in this episode.

Allie and I have an open conversation about what it's like to make motherhood your identity, why legalism is dangerous to minimalism and how you can free yourself from obligation by learning how to say NO more often. Join us, mamas.

Ep 101 Being patient with life, ourselves & our children
15:11

They say that patience is a virtue, but did "they" ever have kids?

As a self-proclaimed impatient girl since childhood, I've seen the danger in living from a place of "Next, please. Hurry up!" Impatience strips us of the present moment.

In this episode, I want to encourage you to take a breath and move through life with more ease and less expectation. We'd be amazed what we can enjoy and experience without the wait of expediency looming over our shoulders.

Ep 099 How I'm starting 2019 with purpose
36:21

It's a new year, mamas and that means it's time to reflect on the last 365 days and make plans for the time ahead of us. I'm not into resolutions (as heard in a previous episode.) I concentrate on intentional goals and creating a word of the year that sparks purpose in my life.

Today's episode is dedicated to starting the year off right, without lofty resolutions that won't be met. Instead, I want to talk about purpose and how you can achieve everything you want in your home, your life and your relationships in this brand new year.

Ep 097 No more resolutions (and why I gave them up)
22:28

How is it possible that we're at the end of 2018 already? Didn't we just start?

With the end of the year coming up fast, resolutions are all the rave. Everyone has one (or ten) to set, but inevitably, most will be completely abandoned by February 1. I've fallen victim to it myself, which is why I quit the resolution game many years ago.

I'm a goal oriented person and love to challenge myself to improve and change. While I don't set up resolutions to start off my year, I do create other intentions and plans to keep me on track and growing.

Sleep issues with our little ones have a profound effect on so many areas of our life as I can tell you from experience. I'm overjoyed to bring you a conversation about such a thing today with Abigail Cannon.

Abigail is the founder of ABCs of Sleep and believes in creating positive sleep habits for both your baby and you.

Ep 094 Running a home when you're self-employed
26:50

It's funny to think that I've been self-employed for as long as I have been a mom and homemaker, but I've raised both my business and kiddos together.

Doing either of those two things can be stressful and time consuming enough, but doing them both at the same time take a bit of strategy (and a whole lot of letting go)

Today, I'm taking you behind the scenes into how I run my home as a self-employed mama with a self-employed husband as well.

Ep 093 The father behind Mother Like a Boss
01:00:57

Back by popular demand is the father like a boss himself, my husband Adam. Creating and leading my mission has been a joy for me, but it isn't always easy. With kids and a home to keep up with, having someone by my side that supports me, loves me and encourages me while also taking on half of the responsibility like a good partner should has been more important than anything.

Join us for a fun, sometimes serious, sometimes silly chat about what it's like from the dad's point of view and how he views homemaking from a father's point of view.

Ep 091 Why I don't balance work & home
25:05

To balance, by definition, means to distribute weight evenly or keep in a steady position so it doesn't fall. That doesn't sound like the kind of carefree and exciting way I want to run my business, run my home or mother my children. I've heard so much about "work/life balance" since I became a mother and entrepreneur and quite honestly, I don't practice it.

Whether you're trying to do it all and exhausting yourself by trying to walk the tightrope of work and home, or children and marriage, or work and personal, this episode is meant to encourage you to embrace the harmony of life through systems, not perfect and equal balance.

Ep 087 The power of positive parenting w/ Rachel Bailey
42:06

When I started Mother Like a Boss, I knew there was one area that I wasn’t going to pretend to be an expert in: parenting. While I’ve learned a lot over the years, I wanted to bring positive parenting experts to my audience that are teaching parenting from a place of positivity and happiness.

Today, I’m so thrilled to introduce you to Rachel Bailey of Redefining Perfect Parenting. This interview is really more of a candid discussion between two moms who believe wholeheartedly is helping moms become confident in their abilities through better communication, happiness and positivity.

BONUS EPISODE | How to live your best mom year, EVER
27:17

There is a heartbreaking trend I am seeing: Moms who don’t take the time to live their best lives because they are two wrapped up in helping others live theirs.

You are deserving of a beautiful year and an even more beautiful life, but no one is going to do it for you. It takes dreaming, and declaration, and action.

So today, I’m making a special announcement for the moms out there that are ready to live their best mom year, free from resolutions they won’t commit to or achieve. Instead, we’re focusing on goals and how you can set them without stress and achieve them on a timeline that works for you.

This is a revolution against resolutions. Join us!

If you're ready to join, head over to www.motherlikeaboss.com/bestmomyear

As always, thanks so much for listening. Be sure to leave us a rating or review so more mamas can find us.

Ep 085 Creating a "sick kit" for your home
20:39

With the holiday season and cooler weather (at least where I live) comes the runny noses and scratchy throats. But no matter what time of year it is, being sick or caring for someone in your home that's sick is no fun.

A "sick kit" should really be called a "well kit" because that's the goal. The goal of a sick kit is to keep the things on hand that we'll need to get well, so we're not making those late night trips to the drug store or scrambling for what we need.

In today's episode, I'm getting into the details of creating a kit or basket for your home and for your family.

Ep 083: 4 ways you're making the holidays harder than they have to be
22:54

It’s beginning to look a lot like…stress?

I love the holidays so much and the last few months of the year are my favorite, but I also understand that with that comes the possibility of stress and exhaustion.

When I became a mom, I really wanted to make the holiday season as fun for our little family as possible and in the process, took on too many things and let my boundaries fall away. Today, I’m talking about the 4 ways we’re making the holidays way harder than they have to be, and how to approach them with more ease and peace.

Tis the season for joy and love, mama.

Ep 080: 3 ways I'm still a homemaking work in progress
15:09

I’m not perfect and to be honest, I don’t want to be. Running a home and a business simultaneously means there’s a whole lot of room for error and I welcome that. Mistakes are the lessons that allow me to be better, to do better and to teach better.

I’ve come a long way and homemaking is much easier now than it’s ever been before (thank you routines) but I’m still a work in progress. In the spirit of total transparency, I’m sharing 3 of the ways I’m still working on myself. Our goals shouldn’t be to get to a finish line, but instead run the race that feels as enjoyable as possible. That’s life. That’s motherhood.

Ep 074: 5 things I do everyday to keep my home running
22:23

Running my home is something I have come to love more than most things in my life. I get a lot of satisfaction out of living in a home that feels managed and unburdened by stress. There are a few key habits I've formed that help me do that.

Today, I'm pulling back the curtain and sharing 5 things I do everyday (ish. Everyday-ish...) that keep my home running like a well-oiled machine and not like my '93 Toyota Tercel. These habits have been formed over time, after a lot of trial and error. They keep us on track as a family and me on track as a mom, wife and business CEO.

Ep 071: How to develop a nightly routine you can fall in love with
35:25

I have a pretty strict philosophy in my home: if it can be done at night rather than in the morning, I'm doing it. I love my nighttime routine with all my heart because it allows me to go to bed, set up for success for the next day before it even begins. I want to make future me proud of present me and not grumpy for having to start the morning off in chaos.

Today, we're talking not only about the importance of having a great evening routine, but how you can start to create one that you can stick to and fall in love with.

Ep 070 From pregnant college dropout to mom boss CEO
01:22:02

I took a very deep breath as I hit publish on this episode. I’m raw, I’m vulnerable, I’m speaking my truth and telling my story. My journey from a young and naive 22 year old pregnant college drop out to mom boss CEO now has not been without it’s issues and hurdles. In fact, the path has been littered with roadblocks and navigating them has taught me the true meaning of grace.

My story is an important part of my greater mission to reach moms where they are now and empower them to be the best version of themselves. I hope you hear my words (through held back tears at many points) and let them inspire you to go forth in your mom journey with confidence.

34:52

We're deviating a bit from the lightheartedness of Mother Like a Boss to discuss a pretty important topic: toxic relationships.

We know them. We've been a part of them in some form. They strip us of joy and keep us wrapped up in stress.

This episode is my call out to all my sweet mamas that are dealing with or engaged in toxic relationships right now, whether in the home, with family, at work or with friends. You deserve better. You can make the choices to eliminate the toxic parties and relationships from your life.

Ep 065: My work-at-home mom schedule
28:13

I've always been what society would consider a "working mom" although my belief is that every mom is a working mom. Since my oldest daughter was a tiny little bean inside my belly, I have owned and operated my very own business. Since going all in with Mother Like a Boss and ending my cleaning business almost 17 months ago, my schedule has dramatically changed.

Although my schedule may not look similar to yours, I wanted to give you a glimpse inside my day-to-day routines, how I worked at home before my son was in school and how it works now. Even if you don't run a business or work from home, I hope this episode is encouraging to moms of all types who want a better handle on daily routines and habits.

Ep 064: From lack mindset in motherhood to abundance
28:55

The last 8 years of my life has been spent opening my mind up fully to the idea of how abundant our universe is and therefore, how abundant we are in life. We live with pure abundance all around us and have the ability to live from a place of unlimited possibilities, especially as mothers and yet we’re surrounded by lack mindset, lack vocabulary, lack beliefs.

The very idea of motherhood is abundant. We birth or become the caretakers of other human beings and have the capacity to open our hearts to them. It’s like love sprouts of of no where. That’s true abundance and the more we embrace that, the more enjoyable our everyday (sometimes seemingly mundane) lives will feel.

Ep 063: Mindset like a boss Monday- Cleaning doesn't have to suck
07:43

Today's mindset shift is brought to you by the ability to clean without dragging your feet and having a toddler-like temper tantrum. We've all been there, giving the side-eye to the daily cleaning and negatively discussing how much it sucks. It doesn't have to and the more you perpetuate that belief, the more you'll find yourself hating it. 

Cleaning isn't a punishment for living in your home anymore than brushing your teeth is a punishment for eating. It's a privilege to have full lives where messes occur. Change your mindset, change your life.

Ep 061: The ever changing seasons of motherhood w/ Meagan Francis
52:58

Motherhood, like life, is a series of ever-changing seasons. There are ebbs and flows, and sometimes curveballs we didn’t expect. The key isn’t to learn how to avoid the changes, but how to roll with them.

I had the pleasure of inviting Meagan Francis on the show today, a mom of 5 and one half of the wildly popular podcast The Mom Hour. We talk about her start in the mom blogosphere and our similar takes on the often dangerous “hot mess mom” culture.

Meagan throws down a lot of truth and doesn't hold back. Our conversation was honest and open about the realities of motherhood and how to get through them without being a martyr.

Time to love ourselves fully and stop the sabotaging behavior.

Ep 059: Sticking to routines when your life is unpredictable
22:14

Our lives aren't always as cookie-cutter as we had planned them to be. Life as a mom can be messy and unpredictable. Between work schedules, extracurriculars, sports, partners that travel and a myriad of other things that pop up each day, our day-to-day tasks can be unpredictable. So how do you stick to a solid routine when you don't live a routine life?

In this episode, I'm introducing the idea of a "floating routine" and how helpful it can be for keeping your life running smooth (ish) even if your daily life and schedule doesn't feel conductive to routines. The more out-of-control your life feels, the more routines will save you.

Ep 058: How to chill out when it comes to motherhood and making your home
27:54

When I put a call out to my audience to see what topics you most wanted to hear about, this answer struck me in such a hilariously real way: "Can you do an episode on how to chill out as a mom?" Could that be filled with anymore truth about how motherhood feels sometimes?

You asked, I answered. This episode is a tribute to the chill and how to achieve it in motherhood and home management. There is no greater burden in our lives than feeling stressed and out of control. In this episode, I tackle how to let go of control and how to embrace the ever changing (and ever-chaotic) seasons of motherhood without freaking out.

Let's chill, girl.

Ep 056: Stay productive, not busy
26:55

Busy is the new fine.

How many times do you answer "BUSY!" when someone asks how you are. Not, "Wonderful. Lovely. Super excited for this life. Peaceful. Calm. Wishing I had a taco right now." No, instead, it's "Really busy."

Mel Robbins said it best when she truthfully bombed us with, "Business is the ultimate form of laziness. Staying busy is our way of avoiding the things we really need to do."

I've committed my life to being full and productive, not busy. I want to fill my minutes with efficiency, not bleed them dry until my entire family is fall-down exhausted.

This episode will take you through the differences between business and productivity and how to become productive with the time you have. No more idle busy work for you, mama.

Ep 055: How I'm embracing a new season in my life (and an announcement on what's coming up!)
28:06

I'm right at the edge of a brand new season in my life and for our family; a season unlike any I have had in the past. This season is one of change in the form of kids entering new schools and me having more time. Don't be fooled. More time isn't always a good thing. More time just means more time to waste if we're not intentional with it.

This episode is all about how I'm embracing this new season and how you can do the same, with whatever season life has for you now. Change can feel scary and overwhelming because of the unexpected, but we can embrace change and the adventures it brings.

And speaking of new seasons, I'm also sharing how the podcast is getting a facelift this fall and what you can expect from our new and improved weekly lineup. My mission is to serve you in every way I can, and this new format speaks directly to that mission.

Finally, I want to give shout you all out and use all the praise hand emojis here. The Mother Like a Boss Podcast has hit 200,000 downloads in it's first 7 month and YOU made that happen. You listened, you shared, you came back week after week. I'm grateful in ways I can't even express. Thank you for being a part of this journey and for trusting me each week.

Ep 054: How to tell if you're making excuses (so you can finally stop!)
24:18

Excuses, excuses. We're all full of them, and after a while it can become difficult to tell the difference between our excuses and reality. Excuses are very different than explanations. Excuses keep us victims of our own circumstances.

For years, I made excuses for why I wasn't able to get things done the way other people could in various parts of my life. My excuses kept me stuck, but comfortable. This episode is a kick in the butt for anyone that wants to break free of the excuse-making cycle and take control of their own life.

Ep 053: M-Lab session with Micah Paschall
50:24

We're doing things a little different this summer when it comes to interviews. Rather than bring on an expert in a particular field, I invited real moms with real struggles to come on the show to share with us what they are going through in motherhood and at home. Sometimes, just hearing another mom ask a question that you've always had is exactly the thing you need to motivate you toward change and improvement.

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Micah Paschall, a Mother Like a Boss student with a beautiful heart and story. It takes a brave woman to discuss her past and present feelings about homemaking open and honestly. We had a great chat about making habits and routines stick and I help her to create more non-negotiable chores for her children. 

Join me for another raw and beautiful episode in the M-Lab sessions.

Ep 052: 7 ways to make this the most organized school year yet!
35:55

I can't believe it's already time to do a back-to-school episode, but here we are. Time, it is a flyin' always. I know that most moms start the year off with the year off with the best of intentions. "This is the school year that I get our collective ish organized and staying that way!" and then by mid-October, you're in full-on chaos mode and not sure how you got there.

Today's episode is aimed to help you start, and keep a system that will make this the most organized school year yet. Start now and thank yourself in December when you've still got it all together, running smoothly.

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Julia Holen who is going to rock your world with how open, honest and vulnerable she is about her life. It takes courage to speak about her struggles with bipolar disorder and she does so with strength and openness. We had a wonderful chat on how she can plan her routines around her life, rather than the other way around and how to stick to household and motherhood routines even in the face of difficult circumstances.

It's the cleaning supplies episode! There are 1001 different brands, supplies and tools out there, so how do you decide what is best? I spent 11 years in the house cleaning business doing the hard work of researching which supplies and tools worked best for most homes. Now, I'm giving you my favorites.

Will all of these work for you? Maybe not. This is based on my own opinion and what I've found gives you the most bang for your buck. Your caddy doesn't need to be overflowing with cleaning bottles to be effective.

Ep 046: A peek inside my daily journaling practice
35:44

I've been a journaling gal since the time I could write. I loved having diaries. I loved having beautiful journals and #allthepens to write with. Writing has always been cathartic for me and a great way to achieve the goals I set for myself. Journaling brings me closer to who I want to be.

But listen, I know journaling can seem extremely overwhelming. What do you write? How long do you write? What kind of journal is best? Should I use prompts? What if I am drawing a blank here? Today, I'm pulling back the curtain of my daily journaling practice and giving you the scoop on how this simple habit has helped me become a better mom, a more successful business owner and a happier woman all around.

Ep 045: Setting boundaries like a mother
31:25

I see you over there, mama. Guilt-ridden every time you say no and always want to please others. You wonder how you can feel better about what you say yes to and how you can live a life that feels more joy-filled and less resent-driven. The answer is boundaries.

I am what I like to call a "boundary ninja" but it hasn't always been that way. I spent many years of my life letting people in my business and personal life walk all over me for fear of stepping up and saying no. A boundary is the ultimate show of love, as you can say yes and be open wholeheartedly without resentment or anger. 

This episode is all about helping you build your emotional fence high enough so that the only people coming in are the ones you have allowed.

Ep 042: How we create a summer bucket list
25:53

I love summer. Aside from the humidity and obnoxious mosquitos, the summer is such a wonderful time to spend together as a family. But as we all know, we start the summer with the best of intentions to do #allthethings and end the summer with the realization that all we did was sit inside next to the AC waiting for school to start again.

A summer bucket list is an excellent way to prepare for the months ahead by deciding what you really want to be doing as a family. In this episode, I'm talking about how we do it in our home and how it's helped us create a summer schedule full of fun without the chaos and FOMO.

Ep 041: How to cultivate a productive (and fun!) summer while the kids are home
29:06

Friends, I have a confession to make: While I usually have a lot of my stuff together, last summer was a real wake up call for me. As a mama who always worked outside of the home, my first summer as a full time work-at-home mom was challenging. Summer (and any season changes in nature and our life) forces us to switch up our routines, for better or worse.

Today's episode is a discussion about how to cultivate a productive summer at home with the kids, while also having fun! There is no need to fall down the rabbit hole of chaos and distress during the summer months. Learn from my mistakes and let's grow together, mama!

Ep 036: Giving 100% without being a perfectionist
18:04

Perfectionism is a dirty little secret that a lot of us moms keep everyday. Whether it keeps you in a state of paralysis or shows up as procrastination, perfectionism steal our joy and stops us from making progress.

Effort however is far different than perfection. Effort feels good. The end result feels comforting, even if it's not the "perfect" outcome. You can give your all without the need to be perfect. Perfection comes from the outside. Idealism comes from the inside.

In this episode, I'm giving a little pep talk on how to give 100% everyday without having to feed into perfectionistic tendencies that will leave you feeling unsatisfied.
